Was wondering. Radio guy didn't really say how it looked. I don't think he could see replay.What was that interference call to end the game?
Counsell didn't even hit the shortstop!
Interference calls are usually very very obvious but this one the ump pulled from his ass
Guys sure competed and most of the newcomers didn't really look out of place at all. Hokenson, Mezzenga, Neels, and even a couple 2nd year guys like Larson, Counsell, and Perry. Perry just missed a homerun in his first AB and announcers thought wind might've kept it in yard.Disappointing end but team showed fight. Nice showing for some of the new comers. Hockenson with a couple big hits, Mezzenga 1-2 and Hauser looked decent out of the bullpen. Gauchos are a good team. Back at it tomorrow .
For as much speed as he has Bateman really isn't a great baserunner. He derailed that inning getting picked off with the 2-0 count 2 on nobody out.Two singles to start the game then....
Talk about your blown chances. That can't happen, especially with your top guys.
Klassen looks like he is trying to overthrow everything and looking for the strikeout on every pitch. Has to understand you are already on every MLB teams radar you don't have to light up the gun on every pitch scouts want to see you actually pitch.Thru 2 we are out hitting them 4-1 with their one hit being an infield hit....yet we trail 4-1. 5 walks and 2 hit batsman by Klassen.
Yeah Malec was solid. Really did it mostly with his sinking fastball too as he had trouble really getting the slider going much tonight. He definitely had a couple pitches go against him but overall didn't really effect anything.Listening to the radio, sounds like Malec did well. I'm sure he wishes he had one pitch back. But 1 walk, 6 k and according to the crowd chatter in the background it seems me might have had to deal with a tight zone.
It didn’t help that we were playing quite strong teams. Playing very good competition always makes you look worse.I'm unable these days to follow the team nearly as closely as you, Goldy, or Darren, but for years, Gopher baseball was known for great fundamentals, solid pitching and defense and pretty good offense. What has happened to the fundamentals, defense and pitching the last 3 years? I don't get it. Know it's early this season and still time to turn it around, but 1st 3 games seem similar to last couple years.
Covid really set the program back as so much of the Gophers success over years have come with bringing in guys some of whom are pretty raw and developing and during that covid 2020/2021 they couldn't do that.I'm unable these days to follow the team nearly as closely as you, Goldy, or Darren, but for years, Gopher baseball was known for great fundamentals, solid pitching and defense and pretty good offense.
